“Craving all you can eat Maryland blue crabs? There are many restaurants offering AYCE crabs in OC, but our go-to is The Crab Bag in North Ocean City! These is usually a wait, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time for this outing. From a New York Times review: “Open 11 a.m.-2 a.m., seven days, year-round, the Crab Bag is the place to satisfy your craving for the state crustacean: the blue crab. It’s also the best place to meet a happy local to teach you how to eat them. These folks have been doing it since birth, each with their own method of mallet use (or avoidance), knife (or fork) use, twisting and cracking. No matter who your guide is (they’re all more efficient than you), the main theme is to take your time, sit back, sip your beer and chat up your family and friends. Oh, and as the summer cools into fall, the crabs are best. A heavy crab is a real score. All-you-can-eat hot steamed crabs with fries, coleslaw and corn.””

Pedestrian Plaza
“Lots to see, do, ride & eat! And in off season, great place to ride bikes! If you're going to splurge -- try deep fried oreos, and I don't even like oreos, or deep fried things usually, so I wouldn't say this if they weren't worth every calorie!”

“Amazing breakfast. Bloody Mary’s, several flavors of mimosas. All of the eggs benedicts are the best you’ll have. There’s a bar upstairs and bar downstairs that are self-seating, so avoid the line and find a spot to eat quickly at one of those!”
